Have you ever thought to use wine barrels as decoration for your wedding?
We are always in search of wedding ideas and inspiration for beautiful and stylish weddings. This year we have been planning many weddings in beautiful countryside locations in Tuscany in the Chianti region. This renowned wine growing district produces some of the most excellent Italian red wines and I took this inspiration for a very versatile decoration: wine barrels!
Wine barrels wedding decor: a versatile and stylish choice!
Wine barrels are a great idea for a flower display, and you can choose different kinds of flowers to suit your wedding style and color palette.
If you combine two barrels and a board you have a rustic table for a cocktail bar, lemonade bar, cheese or dessert table.
This rustic cocktail table with wooden barrels and gorgeous flower arrangements was organized in the gardens of Villa Cimbrone for a fantastic destination wedding in Ravello planned by our agency.
Wooden barrels are wonderful for vineyard and country style weddings, but they can be a great idea also for an elegant wedding like these chic flower arrangements.
A wine barrel can be the perfect support for your wedding cake, and the cake cutting will really be one of a kind!
Wine barrels for an elegant and rustic atmosphere
Even an outdoor ceremony can be improved by the addiction of wooden barrels: look at this wedding arch.
Wine barrels can be used as tables for an outdoor relax area, with rattan chairs and cushions. With a glass top and candles, wine barrels can be an elegant piece of furniture for a country chic lounge area. Here they have been combined with fabric covered hayballs as seats.

Another elegant combination with wrought-iron candelabras, tea lights and vases filled with baby breath.
And for a vineyard wedding you can also choose a barrel-themed wedding cake or cake topper. The topper with the tiny barrel is so cute!
So many combinations are possible, suitable for every color and every season, here are some amazing combinations I have discovered.
If you like these ideas or are interested in a destination wedding in Italy in rustic style, a vineyard wedding or a country chic wedding, Tuscany has many locations suitable for this kind of events.
